Swathing your body in lengths of sumptuous fabric is the ultimate indulgence to trans-season dressing.
It’s time to drop your hem and raise your style quotient with full skirts that swish at floor length.
A trend that is, perhaps, perpetuated by the ever-growing ‘nakedness’ we’re seeing in pop culture, this type of skirt derives much of its appeal from being more modest than anything else. Full skirts are elegant in a subversive way.
It’s easy to see its hanger appeal – it’s feminine but not twee, although the longer hemline and oodles of fabric can be a styling challenge, to say the least. For me, tucking-in is the key to getting the proportions right. And without parroting too much standard fashion fodder, they’re great to pair with a pair of plimsolls a geek chic that fits in neatly with Gucci’s now ubiquitous aesthetic, and they’re also really easy to dress up with a pair of heels for an evening look.
Don’t be afraid to go to new lengths – how low will you go?
